“Might be a good bar but restaurant second rate”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Very very disappointed in this restaurant. The space looks great. From other reviews people seem to think the bar is great. It was crowded the night we were there. I am very surprised that it rates second best in Norwood. We ordered steaks, the most expensive thing on the menu (probably the most expensive steaks I have seen anywhere in Adelaide), and they were ALL undercooked and very tough. Granted, the staff were concerned and refunded one of the meals. But we left hungry and disappointed and will never return.

“Hot and spicy- just add the seasoning!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Great place, great wines, even better cocktails .. we love going here. Food is really good- modern twist on some classics and new things too but in my opinion all was under seasoned. Delicious once a pinch of salt, crack of pepper and slosh of hot sauce added .... Great for groups of a bigger size than two because I couldn't decide what to eat and missed out on some due to lack of stomach space !

“Great bar but don't expect anything special from the restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The bar has a great feel to it and serves good tapas and a reasonable range of wines. The restaurant at the rear is OK but there are better options on the Norwood Parade dining strip such as Martin'is. Popular with the trendy young crowd but if you are looking for a wine bar with a better list, go into the CBD and try Apothocary, Udaberri or Universal.
